RIGHT after Delta announced it would be crapping on NRA members over a shooting it had nothing to do with because some ‘student journalist activist’ targeted them on Twitter, this exchange with the USA Curling team took place:

HELL YEAH! You made America proud! USA! USA! USA!
Surely Delta would do everything possible to make sure athletes who took home the gold for the United States of America would be upgraded for the long flight home, right?
Hi, there. Congratulations, gold medal champions! We are honored to be your ride back home! While we don't have any upgrades to offer, we look forward to seeing you on board. Thanks for flying with us! *AJL

You’ve gotta be sh*ttin’ us.
That’s two fuckups so far today.

The day was young.
Seriously, it’s like Delta’s PR-team WANTED to make themselves look bad … we can see the conversation now:
‘Hey Bob, what can we do to make ourselves look like giant douche-rockets?’
‘Hey Mike, I’ve got a great idea, we’ll treat legal gun owners like garbage AND deny the USA curling team who won gold, upgrades!’
‘Wow Bob, that REALLY sucks, make it so!’
Enterprise will throw them in the trunk when they get to the airport

Nothing but the BEST!
First you cut ties with NRA, then you don’t offer upgrades to the Men’s Curling Gold Medalists. I get it now. You hate America. Thanks for clarifying. #BoycottDelta 🇺🇸

Looks pretty bad.
Hey, maybe you could subtly agree that 5 million people are bloodthirsty killers. Oh, you did that already?

Good Lord. You can't find an upgrade for Olympic gold medalists?

But they were friendly about turning them down and stuff …

I will never fly with you guys again.

I’m starting to think your airline is ran by chimps.
— Jeremy Cays (@jwcays) February 24, 2018
It could happen.
If Olympic Gold Medalists don't deserve a courtesy glass of champagne, some hot towels, and a special movie on the way home I don't know who does.
Curlers, it's not too late to change your flight! And: CONGRATS! ❤️🥇🇺🇸

We certainly wouldn’t call this a banner PR day for your company, eh ?
